Sri Sathya Sai Airport (IATA: PUTICAO: VOPN) is located at Puttaparthi in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. The airport is named for Sathya Sai Baba, the Indian guru. It is a small airport with facilities for chartered flights rather than commercial aircraft. The airport was inaugurated on November 24, 1990. The 1000 metre long airstrip was constructed by L&T ECC. It was later extended to enable the operation of jet aircraft.[1]
